're seeing through the lens. how are things both in the united states and europe. >> and china? >> let's talk about the u.s. in almost every business, there are pockets of real success. let's take, for example, the enormous burst in rental housing. the command for rental housing is incredible. so we're in the home supply business. we do cabinet doors, home depot, supply, we do vanities and things like that. we sell vanity kits as fast as you possibly make to landlocked and multifamily housing who put these things in. we charge $500, they increase the rent $100 a month, the pay back is in months, and the game is on. people are renovating rental places and motels and hotels because they're occupied. three years ago they were taking a room in a motel, tearing it apart, bringing the fixture over and fixing the other room that was leaking. now they're renovating those things. so the home rental idea is moving strongly. you take the marcellus fields, we can't get pipe up there fast enough. we can't get pre-fab buildings up there fast enough. i mean, i'm not talking marcellus, i'm talking north dako

and go. >> reporter: if the united states hasn't won the heart and mind of this 15-year-old, what about the rest of afghans? >> richard, the fact that a generation is now coming of age post-taliban, is that in itself the best defense of the taliban coming back into power, folks who would stand firm? >> maybe not. the taliban is an armed group. these schoolgirls are not going to fight against the taliban. they are all very worried about what is going to happen in this country. and we've spoken to politicians, political analysts, and they think after these troops leave that there could be a civil war in this country, and many afghans now don't remember 9/11. they just remember ten years of war. and they're asking themselves why? why did this happen? why did we have to have all of this war for ten years? >> 300,000 afghan troops, local police, national police have been trained. the strategy to get these folks home is to turn it over to afghan troops. questions about readiness and supplies and that sort of thing. but are they fighting an enemy who has an organization -- are the taliban frag
